Yoga is not....
Just for flexible people
About being the best, the strongest or the fastest
Having expensive, fancy yoga clothes
About doing it right
Yoga is a practice. It's about being yourself & loving yourself - right here, right now. And you can practice that anytime, anywhere.

Last year, I posted 10 Practical Tips to a Successful Yoga Practice. Given that so many people choose January to explore yoga, I thought it worthy to repost...with an addition. Yoga is a meditation in motion. But once you've started to practice yoga & movement on your mat, it's nice to round out your practice with a seated meditation.
Sitting down & meditating can seem daunting. But start with just 5 minutes a day. Some people like to start their day with meditation. Others close their day with meditation. Still other do both - morning & evening. You wonder..."How will I find the time?" If you commit to it, especially just 5 minutes, you'll find time for meditation just like you find time to brush your teeth. It's starts with commitment & it is a practice also, so be compassionate & just give it a try.
